    Cannot login to computer after registry tweak


    So I was originally intending to change my user folder; I first logged in with an alternative administrator account, renamed the account folder, and went to Windows + R -> netplwiz -> clicked on properties of my account -> changed it's name to the correct one. I then successfully did both of the following, according to this guide:

    Do not use ANY method to change the Explorer User folder name in Windows 10 because this can result in a catastrophic failure start loop at the Lock Screen.


    While the User Account name can be changed in Settings, one cannot change the User folder name in Windows 10 without reinstalling. Any attempt using Regedit to change Profile Image Path in registry will cause a failure to start loop at the Lock Screen.


    To add insult to injury, I deleted the temporary profile in its entirety from the Registry.


    Now, the issue is that I cannot open ASO from the login page and none of my other two accounts on my PC are starting up. SHIFT > RESTART, F11, nothing works.

    :)

    Can't login to new computer w/Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.


    • Are you able to login to Microsoft Account on Web?

    • Have you installed any language pack?
    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to select the appropriate language in login screen at the bottom right corner and check if it helps.

    Steps 2: Use On-screen keyboard in the login screen to login and check if it helps.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    Registry tweaks

    Why?

    Save a
    System Image Backup,


    Set
    System Restore
    point

    Backup the registry:
    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows


    Then you have three separate backups you'll probably need.



    If this is to improve performance, no registry tweaks will compare to having a good solid install like the one compiled in

    Clean Install Windows 10.


    You will get and keep the best possible install to the exact extent you stick with the steps, tools and methods in

    Clean Install Windows 10
    .

    Short of that you can go over the
    Windows 10 Performance and Install Integrity Checklist - Microsoft Community
    to make sure it's set up correctly, optimized for best performance and any needed repairs get done.
